EB Charging is to roll out nearly 600 electric vehicle charging points across 80 sites in the UK and Ireland in a new partnership with Q-Park.
The electric vehicle (EV) charging company – which was recently acquired by US charging firm Blink Charging – is to be responsible for the installation of EV charging hardware and the management of the charging provision.
This includes 24/7 customer support service for Q-Park customers who park and charge.
Q-Park is to invest over £3 million in the UK and Ireland on the rollout, with installations due to start in July 2022. This will include the modernisation of existing charging infrastructure with the latest ‘state-of-the-art hardware’, the companies said.
Once the deployment has finished, discussions will start on future phases, with Q-Park stating it is “eager to remain at the forefront of electric charging in the parking market”.
In addition to the public EV charging points, Q-Park has Mobility Hubs which include the provision of rapid fleet charging solutions.
Alex Calnan, managing director of EB Charging, said: “This ambitious project delivers substantial benefits to Q-Park’s customers and accelerates the electric charging points as the demand for charging increases. Both EB Charging and Blink look forward to working closely with the team at Q-Park, and together, help clean the air that we breathe as we provide for more electric vehicles.”
